there are better ones out there

Art, Staples
4 July 2014
  • Excerpt: This unit doesn't work with Windows8...had to use my old computer that was running XP. It didn't work well with our slides from the 50's and 60's. Most slides had to be fed individually. The slide holder would constantly stick and have to be removed, The manual color adjustment does not work well and the machine is just very labor intensive.On the plus side, we bought it on clearance for $15 and that is about what it is worth,We are currently looking into another slide...

Red line

Catherine Kalcum "catiebug", Amazon
11 March 2013
  • Summary: I would have given it a higher rating cause it was very easy to use but it left a red line down the middle of each slide that I scanned.

Mid quality scanner

Denis Kavemeier, Amazon
26 January 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this scanner because of its stackable slide loader. That was a disappointment. The slides often stuck in the scanner, slowing down the process. The scanning procedure is not intuitive, resulting in missed or duplicate scans. The viewing screen cannot be adjusted, so can only be viewed from a straight on angle. The 5 megapixel scans result in scans that lack clarity.

Difficult to edit images for printing.

Jimmy, Staples
1 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Face images are always washed out. Almost every slide needs to be edited for brightness and color balance. If you want a fast scan, it is OK. If you need a good quality final image, it takes a lot of editing for brightness, and color balance. It can be done, but it takes a lot of time. I would recommend it to others only if they have no other scanning option. Generally poor resolution.
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: Attracts Dust, Difficult to Load, Not Versatile

Not for the discriminating amateur

Kodachrome John, Staples
25 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Easy enough to use, but replication from slide>digital is relatively poor. Brightness and color match to original very inconsistent. Some ability to correct, but time consuming and disappointing. Good value for the price point, but best used by "snapshot" amateur just looking to archive family photos. Don't throw out the slides!
  • Pros: OK for base amateur
  • Cons: Brightness inconsistent, Color resolution poor, Requires manipulation, Slow

Software problems

blackjack, Staples
8 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Scanner is not identified or recognized without a great deal of effort. Must reboot, re-run the software, check the driver and change ports in order to use after it has been unplugged and restarted. Quality of scan is OK once you cn get it to work.
  • Pros: Accurate Thumbnails, Fast, Good Resolution

Too much dust & inaccurate colors

Loves pictures, Staples
21 November 2011
  • Excerpt: I wanted to transfer my negatives to the computer. Most of the pictures from the scanned negatives have very bad color & can't always be corrected; most of the ones I am able to correct still aren't accurate colors; slides have much better color. Most pictures have to be retouched, because the dust particles put white specks on the transferred pictures; I can't keep the Ion clean with the little dust wand.
  • Pros: Easy to use, Nice size
  • Cons: Poor color transfer
